I have read "Scalability: 1-way" in the specifications of a server. What does it means?

The server is :

HP ProLiant ML110 G6 TV X3430 2.40GHz 4-core 1P 1GB-U Non-hot Plug 250GB SATA LFF 300W PS

From the tags I'm guessing it's an HP Proliant of some kind. An exact model will help. – sysadmin1138 Nov 28 '11 at 22:07

In old Compaq vernacular the number of CPU sockets was traditionally referred-to as "1-way" for single socket, "2-way" for dual socket, "4-way", etc. I suspect that you're looking at a machine with a single CPU socket.

That would make sense. It has an Intel Xeon with 4 cores, but maybe it uses only one socket. could it be? I have updated the post with the server description. – NullOrEmpty Nov 29 '11 at 11:05
